The Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul will be in a party mood to kickstart May.
For starters, it’s the month when warmer weather finally roll in, and that is enough to get the region in the mood to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. For many, the party will take place in the bars that dot the region, but the party won’t stop there as it will also continue in the concert halls that will play host to these awesome concerts in the Twin Cities.
Before hitting the bars for Cinco de Mayo, revelers should make their way to the Target Center to pay homage to the Twin Cities’ favorite son. Prince, who hailed from Minneapolis, will be celebrated in a tribute concert featuring some of the biggest names in music, coming together to honor the life and career of a true trailblazer in music.
The brand new U.S. Bank Stadium is already garnering rave reviews, and so far, the gleaming modern gem in the heart of Minneapolis has played host to some of the biggest events in modern pop culture. The stadium can add Kenny Chesney to the list, as he will bring his Trip Around the Sun tour the U.S. Bank Stadium on Cinco de Mayo, to the sheer delight of country music fans all over the region.
